Aged care health check: Sector Leader update

Our Sector Leader – Healthcare Angela Wood offers her opinions on recent federal government ministerial changes:

It’s back to the future with the move of aged care from the Social Services portfolio back to the Health portfolio under Federal Minister Sussan Ley and Assistant Minister Ken Wyatt. 

We think this move will provide opportunities to implement better integration of health services with other care services provided to older Australians, who are significant users of the health system.  Discussions with Council of Australian Governments (COAG) on Reform of the Federation and the review of the Medicare Benefits Scheme are underway. A focus on how the Australian care system can achieve better outcomes, including for older Australians will be welcome. There is plenty of room to improve efficiencies in health and aged care services. 

The currently fragmented system does not always offer tailored choices in health care that are responsive to the needs of patients.  The result is poorer outcomes for patients as well as higher costs for the system.  It will also be interesting to see whether some of the changes towards consumer focused care under the recent reforms of the aged care system will translate into the health system.
